The story of my ovarian cancer is short. In 2004 I had a total hysterectomy with ovaries taken out as well. Three days after surgery my GYN told me that I had a tumor but that the lab wanted to do further studies. One week after surgery I was told that my "specimen" was being sent to Stanford University in CA for further studies. Three weeks and one day after surgery I was called that I had a very rare type of ovarian cancer. It was a thecoma-granulosa composite tumor.

My cancer was stage one and was already surgically removed before I knew that I had it. I did not need chemotherapy nor radiation. The only thing that the oncologist said was to get a checkup with a GYN every six months and to make sure I had my annual mammograms.

June 15, 2008 I will be a 4 year Survivor.

I thank God that my cancer was found early. Many ovarian cancers are found in late stages.
